Portable Small Meter Tester (PSMT)
The Portable Small Meter Tester (PSMT) is a lightweight system for field testing of 5/8…1 in. meters. It includes a test meter with control valves, hose connections, fittings and pressure gauge. Meter tests can be done without removing them from service. The inlet control valve ensures an accurate test start and stop. A globe valve downstream from the meter allows flow rate adjustment during test. Connection to the PSMT is made using standard 3/4 in. male hose connections located on the exterior of the case. Two 3/4 x 39 in. metal-reinforced flexible hoses are provided for easy field connections.
